Blue Witch is marvellous, she's found a brilliant site. Called Geograph, it aims to collect photographs of the entire country, every bit of it, and invites people to submit their photos. Over 80% of the country is represented so far. Here's one of the latest pictures - and of course, I had to look up this area and found one of our house. Old Manor House, indeed. No, it was never that, but it made me chuckle.
It's been a most fine day, because Roses came to lunch. Ben instantly adored her, as you might expect, but she dealt with that very capably and we talked non-stop for hours. We took Ben for a walk on the marshes too, and he had a brilliant time, coming back wet and muddy from splashing in the river. I should have taken a picture of the long line of cows walking back to the farm for milking time - I was more concerned about the chances of Ben getting in their way, but he was perfectly well-behaved - and besides, he then noticed one of his dog friends being taken for a run, so went off to say hello.
And this evening I'm out to supper. The mad social whirl, darlings.
